How You Can Help
This year Urban Edge Farm needs funding for a deer fence, native trees and shrubs for the woodland area, materials to refurbish our worm composting hutch, teaching supplies, beekeeping equipment, a picnic table, irrigation equipment, and more! Two years ago the farm was launched by a generous $10,000 gift. Now in it's first full year of crop production, the farm needs another infusion of funding from the community to become Lancaster's hub for urban agriculture, sustainable agroforestry, and community gardening education.
